On Sunday I took part in the Eureka Challenge along with my team from work. The challenge: 88 levels, 300 vertical metres, 1642 stairs…..and I did it in 15 mins 52 secs! It was certainly tough but very satisfying to complete and I definitely witnessed a few team members (you know who you are) saying they’d to do it again next year….
The challenge ahead
Race number on and ready to go….
Then I look up….this was daunting!
Team all set (with our boss’s son in the front, youngest competitor at 9 yrs and he completed it just under 16 mins)
Halloween is still not a big event here in Oz but this year there seemed to be more going on than usual. Charlie’s kinder had a day of dress-up and a ‘gathering’ in the park afterwards. The kids loved the halloween lollies and cakes….thanks to all the mums who did the baking!
The prep class reps at Ella’s school organised a treasure hunt on the oval. I was amazed how well everyone gathered their loot and brought it back to the adults to share out. We also went out ‘trick or treating’ in the evening. Some parents from school had nominated their houses as having treats so we had a map to follow. After 2 hours I had sore feet but the kids didn’t complain at all!
Ready to Go
Too many lollies

Fun was had by all!
Hard to believe 3 years have passed since our little bundles came into the world so abruptly….a whole 10 weeks premature. Without looking back at pictures, we struggle to remember just how tiny they were compared to the healthy little girls we have now:
On their birthday we had dinner with all the family and then they had a little party with their friends from Treehouse on the weekend. They were so excited to have their own friends there. Two very happy little girls! Here are a few pics:
